BMW shows the Vision ConnectedDrive for Geneva Auto Show


BMW will show its vision for the future, the tech loaded Vision ConnectedDrive concept at the Geneva Motor Show. The new concept car is a move forward from the EfficientDynamics concept BMW showed earlier. ConnectedDrive is a topless electric car packed with BMW’s advanced driver assistance and mobility networking systems. The automaker hasn’t released the full set of specs yet, those will probably come along as the auto show draws closer.

Suzuki shows a sofa that can be driven

Suzuki shows a sofa that can be driven


At the Chicago Auto Show, Suzuki displayed its motorized sofa. It isn’t really something groundbreaking or even remotely practical, but having a sofa that can be driven, while you sit comfortably and chow down on muchies is too tempting a thought to give up. The sofa is powered by a 169cc engine, and was created for a promotional campaign for the Kizashi sedan.

Neptune MM2 micro-submarine concept

Neptune MM2 micro-submarine concept


Neptune MM2 concept from designer Vil Tsimenzin is a sibling of the Tryton MM2 we saw earlier. The siblings are quite a match, not just in the finesse of renderings, but also in the medieval weapons they so proudly seem to carry. While the Tryton moves on the road, the Neptune has its eyes on ruling the waters. The micro submarine concept aims to capture the imagination of the 21st century adventurer by keeping its focus on wonder, imagination, and romantic legend, as is to be expected of submarines. Designed with a wee bit of Jules Verne like visual character, the sub offers comfort comparable to modern automobiles.

Many of these cars are purchasable, and are priced from NZ$800 to NZ$2,000 (US$472 to US$1,537).

Decorate your walls with the world’s famed race tracks

Decorate your walls with the world’s famed race tracks

The way I see it, Race Tracks of the World makes an excellent piece for the walls. Getting a chance to put some of the world’s famed race tracks on the wall should be a reward in itself, and it is pretty damn cool. Now if we could just have similar tracks to race toy cars in, that would be totally cool as well. Anyways, these wall decorations are made of high quality Baltic birch plywood and matte black Formica, and are mostly about a 36-inch square in size. The price varies between $199-$275.

Pagani Huayra supercar debuts

Pagani Huayra supercar debuts


Pagani has unleashed the latest of its supercars, the aggressively styled Huayra. The gullwinged-supercar gets its dose of power from Mercedes-Benz AMG-built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that sends off a humungous 700 horsepower to the rear wheels, coupled with 740 pound-feet of torque. Weighing under 3000 pounds, the supercar has a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox and gets a top speed of 230mph. The low weight of course is owed to liberal use of carbon fiber and aluminum both in the exteriors and the interiors.
